Got this Phone from Ebay. It is good at this price. And yes, WhatsApp is supported by third party application i.e. Connect A2, loqui IM, etc. So as an advantage you can use more than one WhatsApp account!! It has Marketplace from where you get various apps. And one thing is beautiful, the app sizes are too small compared to Android Apps. It is good to buy, but if you want more performance than don't, as it just have 128mb RAM. So it lags many a times.
I have purchased it on ebay for inr 1164.00 only by redeeming some payback point.
It is very good phone with firefox os 1.3, you dont need to sign in like android to operate this its availabe on ebay for just INR 1599.00 hurry other wise you miss.
Facebook,line,telegram is availabe on firefox store u can use whatsapp by 3rd party app like openwapp,louki and connectA2. Although it has 128 mb but it works like 512 mb ram in android. Go ahead i hope you will not be disappointed. Battery needs charging twice in a day for heavy use other wise battery is good. Overall u are getting a smartphone with 3.5 inches hvga screen,many sensors,brand alcatel,1.3 mp camera and vga front camera. Only for 1599.00
Shakil, 10 Jan 2015Can I use Skype to this phone?Skype is not available for this OS for now. You have several IM apps and services available, LINE and whatsapp clones, for instance.
i didnt even know that firefox had an OS
no offence. the features kinda sucks
this phone is not good because have a some touch problem. and music app is the best problem in this handset and firefox store avaiable app is very poor and not avaiable common app
its nice got usb tethering,wifi hotspot all you have to know is you have to spend some money on it buy a power bank so batterylasts for 7 days buy a memory card of 16gb setup wifi in home then you will enjoy
I am unable to scroll to set the time. Also I am unable to scroll down to Sunday to set my alarm. Anyone know why?

what i can see is why firefox os entry level smartphone is doom is.
1)no physical keyboard
if manufacturer want feature phone user to buy entry level firefox os smartphone is to make slide physical keyboard. which is majority of feature phone user love because of small screen can lead to miss typing
we live in this era when screen eating battery juice like rain but manufacturer still insist to put small capacity inside this phone, did they never learn from china entry level android, most of them has at least 1400 mah capacity, even my feature phone has 1500mah battery at 2.4 inch
how come u can call this smartphone if no 3G connectivity in 2014? even china entry level android got 3G
4)useless front facing camera
with vga resolution from front camera u wont see anything unless u under direct of sunlight (based on my experience with vga front face camera)
5)small internal storage(ROM)
small internal storage can lead to laggy phone and most user who gonna buy 1st smartphone wont know about need to buy memory card
bow, 20 Oct 2014did Alcatel Fire C 2G have any store like playstore that can download games are apps?Yes, you can download apps from Firefox Marketplace.
